This is a first for me really, having my hobbies and interests cross into my work life. Being a Web developer it’s my job to keep up to date with the latest industry news and events; while this isn’t breaking news it is something that i’ve been thinking about for a few weeks now to see how I sit with the situation. I am an avid airsfoter; what is “airsoft” I hear you say, well in very simple terms it is essentially paintballing but instead of paintballs you fire plastic BBs. It is a sport of honour as obviously you won’t have massive sploges of paint all over you. Now with this sport you are using Real Imitation Firearms (RIFs) and for obvious reasons there are certain regulations and laws. You can’t just walk in off the street and buy a RIF, you have to have valid defence to purchase such a gun unless it is coloured 51% in a bright colour (normally orange or green).
